After a highly successful 2023 tour with The Band Geeks, Jon Anderson decided to expand the creative partnership with the band to create new material for a potential new studio album. The result of this effort is “TRUE”, which will be released on August 23 by Jon’s new label, Frontiers Music Srl. 

During Jon Anderson’s 39-year Rock and Roll Hall of Fame career as the lead vocalist of YES, he was seen as one of the leading proponents of the Progressive Rock movement.  During his tenure with YES, he recorded 19 studio albums and multiple live albums, many of which have been certified gold and platinum.  Albums such as The “YES” album, “Fragile”, “Close to the Edge”, “Tales of Topographic Oceans”, and “90125” remain classic albums to this day.  Songs such as “Roundabout”, “Yours is No Disgrace”, “And You and I”, “Going for the One”, “Awaken”, and “Owner of a Lonely Heart” were staples on Active Rock radio throughout the 70’s and 80’s.

While still a member of YES, Jon released multiple solo records and collaborations, the most noteworthy being his 4 albums with Greek composer Vangelis Upon leaving YES in 2008, Jon continued releasing multiple solo records and collaborations.  In 2023, after connecting with a group of New York musicians called The Band Geeks, Jon embarked on a summer of 2023 tour performing 2 hours of YES epics and classics. With The Band Geeks, Jon found a group of musicians that he felt could collaborate with him to create a body of work that rivaled the classic YES sound of the 70’s and 80’s. 

The 9-song album will be a welcome gift to all fans of Jon’s 40 years as lead vocalist of the multi-platinum Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee YES. The album’s collection of songs harkens back to YES’s classic 70’s sounds as well as to their latter-day success with the album “90125”. The album was co-produced, engineered, and mixed by Band Geek bassist and musical director Richie Castellano, with the centerpiece being the 16-and-a-half-minute track “Once Upon a Dream” which will stand amongst other classic Jon penned epics such as “Close to the Edge”, “Ritual”, “Gates of Delirium”, and “Awaken”.
